wow! thats gona ride like total sh!t. well, if your stuck on doing it good luck...Ill try and look for a pic to show you what you need to cut.

depending on how good you are, you could modify the lower control arm instead, you would have tocut off the very end were the ball joint mounts to, then reweld it back on about 2" higher with some new bracing.


the drop could be done, but its still not a good idea at all!

Your lucky. My shop teacher wouldn't let me put spindles on, airshocks, and then when it came time to bag I wasn't allowed. O well did it myself in the dirt.
